Chinese media calls out “fake lamas” with Ponlop Rinpoche as an example

Dzogchen Ponlop with Ogyen Trinley Dorje

Dear readers,

Salut mes amis !

This story broke in Chinese government censored media in 2016.

Consider the source’s agenda.

That being said.

“Recently circulated online posts reported that the husband of Taiwan television host, singer and actress Aya Liu was rumored to be a ‘Living Buddha.’ On May 13, Liu revealed that her husband, previously known by the name of Tony, is actually the seventh reincarnation of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.”

“The 7th Dzogchen Ponlop, who is based in Seattle, has many followers who include Faye Wong and Tony Leung. Aya Liu said she didn’t want to reveal her husband’s identity because of the Rinpoche’s faith and because of her celebrity status. ‘I didn’t want public opinions to disrupt our peaceful lives,’ she said.”

“Liu is not the only female celebrity to marry and have a child with a Rinpoche. Hong Kong singer Shirley Kwan admitted in 2014 that her son’s biological father is Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, also known as Khyentse Norbu.”

Voilà !

My point which I put to your consideration.

In light of the Jamgon Kongtrul scandal what are we to make of such hypocrisy in Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s innermost circle?

Courage !
